I finished this one over the weekend. I let my hubby pick this from the “TBR” jar this time around and this was the one that he drew. This book is probably better suited for the young adult crowd. I’m not saying this book is bad or anything. It’s just that if you’re an adult, you might find that this book has too much “teenage angst” going on. Some people are okay with that, others may not like that. If you are a teenager, you might like this book more. This book is equal parts romance and coming-of-age story.
Synopsis: Rose Asher believes in ghosts. She should, since she has one for a best friend: Logan, her annoying, Netflix-addicted brother, who is forever stuck at fifteen. But Rose is growing up, and when an old friend moves back to Laguna Canyon and appears in her drama class, things get complicated.
Rose watches as Jamie Aldridge easily rejoins their former friends–a group of magnificently silly theater nerds–while avoiding Rose so intently that it must be deliberate.
Yet when the two of them unexpectedly cross paths, Rose learns that Jamie has a secret of his own and finds that it’s becoming harder to choose between the boy who makes her feel alive and the brother she isn’t ready to lose.
“In a world full of real ghosts, how does one ever learn to let go? Schneider will make you laugh and cry and fall in love as you find out.” -Julie Buxbaum, author of Tell Me Three Things
“Schneider’s characters shine in this romance, strapped with quirky, nerdy obsessions that many teens will relate to, and supported by realistic voices.” -ALA Booklist
